It's been more than 40 years since the famous movie The Blue Lagoon was released. The actors starring in the movie have changed a lot since then. Look at how the hot blond guy looks now, a heartthrob of the 1980s.
The movie plot
After an awful ship wreckage, two cousins, nine-year-old Richard and seven-year-old Emmeline and a gallery cook Paddy arrive on a lush tropical island. Paddy takes on the responsibility of caring for the children, teaching them how to behave, how to get food, how to build a house, etc.
To everybody's dismay Paddy discovers that there is a tribe on the other side of the island that makes human sacrifices. He forbids the kids "by law" from going to that part of the island. Another law is a ban on poisonous red berries after Emmeline tried to eat one. Paddy dies after a drunken binge and the children rebuild their home on a different part of the island.
Six years later, the characters grow up and become strong and beautiful teenagers. They live in the cabin they built and spend their days fishing and swimming. After a while, the young people begin to notice that they are attracted to each other, but they don't know how to express their desire. A few years later, they have a child and a ship arrives on the island to rescue them.
Both actors have changed a lot since then.
Emmeline was played by actress and model Brooke Shields. Brooke was only 15 years old at the time, and many critics pointed out that she shouldn't have worn such revealing clothes for almost the entire movie.
The gentle Richard, on the other hand, was played by Christopher Atkins. Very few viewers have seen this beautiful actor in other movies, but he is still remembered for this role.
